MADNESS PHOTOGRAPHY

Madness Photography started as an official, serious company in 1998.
But the history of Madness Photography started long before. Onno “Berserk” Wieringa, founder and owner of Madness Photography, has been a self-taught photographer since he was a little kid and started to take pictures of something he loved since the day he was born: motorcycles!

His motorcycles
After he finished high school, he started working for various Harley-Davidson shops, where he learned to work on bikes. At the age of 17, he already owned two Triumph’s and when he was eighteen he had four Triumphs and a Suzuki GT 750. After getting his drivers license, when he was eighteen, the Triumphs all had to go and were replaced by a bike that he had wanted since the day he was born; a Harley-Davidson. This bike is still in his life; it’s an FXE-F 1200 Super Glide Fat Bob, which has been rebuild and modified endlessly and ridden for many miles. Going everywhere on the bike, there was one thing he always had in his pocket; his camera!
At the age of 23 he started drag racing, and he and his team named “Midnight Madness”, raced the bike on all the major races and drag strips all over Europe. He has competed in many classes; starting with the Street bikes, than Ultimate Street Bike, Super Stock, Pro-Stock, and then finally in the fastest gas burning class; Top Gas! Also again taking thousands of photo’s of everything interesting, at every racetrack! Being a racer for more than 18 years gave him insight in the world of fast bikes, and he’s still involved in the world of drag racing as a helper/mechanic and of course photographer / reporter.

Check out all the 600 Harley & Snow 2017 photo’s on www.madnessphotography.nl


Harley & Snow: snow, sun, a steep, well prepared piste and 170 race teams, anxiously waiting to get on their bikes, ready to ‘Kill the Hill’. Vollgas! or ‘Wide Open Throttle!’ is the only rule. Except of course the usual safety features, checked on Friday night and after a good party the riders got their first ‘taste ‘ of snow on Saturday morning. Some even literally, as not all the riders are used to snow, let alone Mountains! As last years, this Harley and Snow edition was an international race, with competitors coming from Italy, Germany, Switzerland, The Netherlands, Austria, Luxembourg etc.

Nieuw bij Grand Canyon: ACE schoenen van Stylmartin

ACE schoenen van Stylmartin:

De ACE is de nieuwe Lace-up enkellaars van het voorjaar, gemaakt van volnerfs rundsleer met een handige ritssluiting. De handtekening van het Italiaanse merk Stylmartin is onmiskenbaar terug te vinden in de stijl. 



Met de ACE worden de nieuwe Classic rijders, Naked Bike en Café Racers aangesproken. Het model past perfect in de lijn van de modellen Rocket, Wave en Iron die vorig jaar reeds zijn geïntroduceerd. Top kwaliteit materialen, hoogwaardige afwerking en de trend setting stijl zijn de gemeenschappelijke eigenschappen van deze lijn.


De technische eigenschappen, onmisbaar voor de bescherming van de voeten van een motorrijder, zijn hier gemengd met een vedergewicht constructie die het mogelijk maakt om lichtvoetig met deze lederen laars de hele dag op pad te gaan, inclusief langere loopafstanden. 

De ACE is aan de binnenzijde eveneens met leder afgewerkt, er wordt een losse schakelversteviging/bescherming met een elastische band meegeleverd en is aan beide zijden voorzien van een enkelversteviging. De karakteristieke rubberen zool geeft de juiste steun wanneer nodig.


Leverbaar in de maten 39 t/m 47. De adviesverkoopprijs voor deze ACE schoenen is €249 en verkooppunten zijn te vinden op www.grandcanyon bike.eu
